In a world where technology is used every day, almost all small businesses and home offices use computers. These devices need to be working properly.
Frustration can mount when one, or all, of these devices stop working properly. The majority of the time when this happens, we do not have the skills, the time, or the desire to do the computer service or repair. At the ALC, Nebo has some very talented students that have the required skill to handle that problem.
At the ALC, one of the courses offered is the A+ Computer Repair (IT1600) class. It is a class where the students learn necessary competencies for any entry-level professional, including installing, building, upgrading, repairing, configuring, troubleshooting, optimizing, diagnosing and performing preventative maintenance of basic computer hardware and operating systems. At the end of the class, students can also earn Industry Certification A+.
The ALC has three students who have certified and have the knowledge and skills to sort out any problems related to your device. The students who have been certified and who will be working on your devices are: Joe Rogers, Andrew Benson, and Carson Lewis. These students have taken Mr. Talbot’s PC Pro Repair class and passed the TestOut PC Pro certification exam. In the repair shop class, these ALC students repair ChromeBooks for the district and personal computers for the public.
These ALC students are certified to fix the following: Mobile devices iPad, tablets, Windows laptops, Windows desktops, Apple laptops, printers, computer builds, computer upgrades, computer build consulting, operating system installations, software installations, and ChromeBook repair.
All of these ALC students do the repairs, under the supervision of their instructor, Mr. Gerald Talbot. The cost to customers for the students to fix the device is a flat rate of $25, plus the cost of the parts. This is a GREAT way for the public to get a device fixed at a low cost and give the students opportunities in the industry where they have certified.
RepairWare is located at the ALC, 161 East 400 North, Salem, Utah. The business hours are 8:15- 2:20 every weekday. If anyone has a device that needs to be fixed, please bring it by during those hours, or email Mr. Talbot, firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment.
